About-

From the nativity to the resurrection, from the healings on the road to the teachings at the well, the lives of women shine prominently in the Gospel. In Wisdom's Daughters, Elizabeth Watson tells the life of Jesus through the real and imagined accounts of Mary Magdalene, Elizabeth, Martha, Mary the Mother, and ten others, shedding new light on the Gospel stories, affirming the undeniable presence of women in the early community of disciples--and painting a breathtaking image of the relationship between Jesus and women. Each chapter includes Scripture references, commentary on the biblical scholarship, and questions for personal reflection or group dialogue.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"Wisdom's Daughters circles women around Jesus in a way that praises him and elevates them. From many corners of neglect, these wise women come, and each distinctly finds a room of her own in Jesus's mansion. Readers of this book will be wiser about Jesus and the women who loved him."
--Donna Schaper, writer and pastor in Amherst, Massachusetts and author of Why Write Letters: Ten Ways to Simplify-and Enjoy-Your Life

"So my real life began. . . . It was as if I were seeing everything for the first time. I had never noticed how beautiful the earth is, the grass and flowers, clouds and birds, everything was a delight to me."
-from "Mary Magdalene"
